1.4 Interview

The wonderful Lyndy Stout at online magazine 1.4 invited me to give an interview about my new short film and some background on how my work is evolving since deciding to branch out as a solo director and move on from the days of Diamond Dogs.

One Man's Loss Tailer

Finally managed to edited a trailer for the film. I guess the poster frame kinda gives the ending away, but if you need a trailer here it is.


One Man's Loss premiered at the Court Metrage - Short Film Corner at the prestigious 2013 Cannes Film Festival. I went out to support the film and even ended up on the red carpet at the premiere for the Coen Brothers latest offering Inside Llewyn Davis. Many thanks to the young American who lent me his prom tux so I could attend.


The Black Hole

Philip Sansom's first short film The Black Hole (co-directed with Olly Williams) won the inaugural Virgin Media Awards in 2008. Describe by the prestigious judging panel which included Kevin Spacey & Sir Richard Branson as "Near perfect story telling" & "the work of a future star director." The film went on to win a score of awards the world over and clocked up an insane 15 million hits on YouTube making one of the most played short films of all time.
